Alejandro González Iñárritu is about to get revenant in the near future…
This September the 50-year-old Mexican filmmaker will direct Leonardo DiCaprio in the gritty thriller The Revenant.
González Iñárritu and Mark L. Smith co-wrote the script for the film, an adaptation of the Michael Punke novel The Revenant: A Novel Of Revenge.
The film will star DiCaprio as Hugh Glass, a 19th century fur trapper who gets mauled by a grizzly bear, and then is left for dead by cohorts who rob him. When he survives, he is not a happy camper and sets out on a treacherous journey to exact revenge on those who betrayed him.
Produced by New Regency, the film is slated for release in the fall of 2015.
